The box arrived completely destroyed. The owl won't balance. Just falls right over. I will be returning this product.

                Very cute just wish it was bigger so it could be seen from across the yard. The actual dimensions are 26" w by 20" high. Perhaps there was a third piece to the stake that was missing from my shipment?

                Comments about UncommonGoods Spiky Owl Balancer Stake:

                I bought this on the off chance that it might startle the rabbit who munches on my garden seedlings. I'm not sure about how effective that strategy is, but I am happy with the way this looks in the garden. It moves gracefully and tolerates the fairly strong, gusty winds we get in the afternoon (I am assuming it needs to be taken down for storms). I have accidentally knocked it off its perch with a spray from the garden hose, so it probably won't stay in place near a tall, vigorous sprinkler. The one fault I must mention is that the heavily enhanced photo in the listing is misleading. The actual colors of this piece are much duller than shown, and the quality of the construction is cruder. It's attractive as it is, but not what I was expecting based on the photo. It also arrived a bit bent up, but I was able to straighten out the bent bits.
